Most Indian ‘high-skilled’ migrants in the Netherlands are male and single.

This paper captures the aesthetics of migration which encompasses destruction as well regeneration of identities. We use the writings of an indentured labourer in Surinam, Munshi Rahman Khan (1874-1972), and apply the concept of human security in order to understand the impact of migration on communal identification. We show that the psychological...

This article invites a rethinking of the relation between homeland, diaspora and religion.

The article interrogates the understanding of the Indian diaspora with rel...
